for those reckless actions. stoord & poors estimates the shutdown cost our economy $24 illion, and the peterson institute said bipartisanship has cost our country 900,000 jobs since the 2010 elections. i hope every member of this committee, democrats and republicans alike, will put away the threats of future shutdowns and default and focus our efforts to help our economy grow. the house and republican and senate democratic budgets before us represent very different visions for the future of the country. we're not going to be able to bridge all those differences, but i hope we can make some progress, and that will require tough compromises. it is also important to be honest with the public about the nature of our differences, because to govern is to choose, and our budgets reflect different choices. we need to reduce the long-term deficit in a balanced way. it provides for vital investments to ensure america remains the world's economic powerhouse. we aloe indicate resources to -- allocate resources to put people to work, modernizing our bridges and our ports and other infrastr
